Calling all Austin artists! In about a month we’ll be throwing one helluva SXSW party, and we need your help to make it especially radical. Are you a performer, installation artist, projection mapping master, or the doer of some other form of visual art that has yet to be discovered? Send your portfolio our way!
We’re also taking recommendations from those that aren’t creators themselves, but happen to have keen pals. Make haste and show us that sweet, sweet eye candy!
